Families, women and those most vulnerable in our community will benefit from the NSW Government’s blueprint for reform, creating opportunity and helping people prosper.
Member for Hawkesbury, Robyn Preston MP welcomed the investment into brighter futures for Hawkesbury residents.
“This Budget has focused on the health and safety of women, creating opportunities for women to have the choice to be more active in the workforce, education and boosting family budgets,” Ms Preston said.
The NSW Government’s Budget has invested in programs and services that ensure women in all stages of life feel safe and supported.
By investing in affordable and accessible childcare, more women will have the choice to enter the workforce or take on more hours, increasing female workforce participation and closing the gender pay gap.
NSW is launching one of the biggest education reforms in a generation - starting with the introduction of a universal pre-Kindergarten year of education by 2030 for which the 2022-23 Budget will set aside more than $5.8 billion over 10 years.
Ms Preston welcomed the announcement of $37.1 million for the building of the Hawkesbury Centre of Excellence for Agricultural Education in the NSW Budget.
“The key to the success of the State’s future is in education and I’m pleased to see the $37.1 million commitment from the NSW Government for the building of the Centre of Excellence,” Ms Preston said.
